Guerrero made a name for himself in WWE and WCW alongside his uncle, the
legendary Eddie Guerrero, and has since found a second act of his career as a fight coordinator and actor for shows like Netflix’s GLOW and CW’s The Red Shoe Diaries. Guerrero joins the cast of The Luchador alongside the recently announced Hikaru Shida (AEW) and Joseph Ruud aka Erik Rowan/Redbeard (WWE, AEW.)

Chavo says about the project, “I’m really proud of how my performance came out for The Luchador. I play this guy who feels like the Hispanic Vince McMahon. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Showrunner Dan Valero Fletcher says, “Chavo Guerrero and his family have defined a special corner of wrestling for generations. It is an honor for him to be a part of this story that celebrates the special DNA that flows through lucha and Mexican wrestling.” Producer Brandon Kendall adds, ”Stunt performers, and professional wrestlers, for that matter, should be championed as artists. Chavo is a prime example of how talent can transcend classification. Our show is founded on providing opportunities for actors like Chavo to show what they can do dramatically.”

The Luchador: 1,000 Fights of El Fuego Fuerte is set in a supernaturally charged world of Lucha Libre and Mesoamerican myth. The show follows the story of the “Champion of Mexico City”, the heroic and sometimes ethically perplexed El Fuego Fuerte. Season two finds the titular técnico (“good guy”) and his rudo (“bad guy”) compatriot Lobo Sangre entering a prestigious lucha libre tournament in the Sierra Madre mountains. As each is drawn to their respective sides of the técnico/rudo divide, only one can come down the mountain a winner.

The second season will drop in 2024 and you can expect more casting announcements in the lead-up to release. Season one is currently available on all podcast streaming platforms.
